The Bad Tempered Ladybird!


We've had a fun week continuing to learn about mini beasts in Barn Owl Class. This week our focus story has been The Bad Tempered Ladybird, written by Eric Carle. The children have loved listening to this story and have enjoyed learning about lots of different creatures that they have not seen before, for example a Praying Mantis! The children have done some super writing this week about The Bad Tempered Ladybird! 


In Maths, the Year Ones have been learning about addition and the Reception children have been learning about subtraction. 

In Science, we have been learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. I wonder if they could tell you what those words mean? Or give you any examples? 


We have been continuing to watch our caterpillars grow each day! The children have been excited to see they are now 'big fat caterpillars!' We are looking forward to seeing them turn into cocoons!


Have a lovely weekend!
